Touring European teams could boost US soccer
The reach of the Liverpool Football Club — and of other top-level European soccer clubs — is great. And many of those clubs, in an effort to extend their fan bases in the emerging soccer market of the United States, are doing so with summer tours of the country, with exhibitions such as the Liverpool-AS Roma game at Fenway Wednesday. But who are the Liverpool Football Club diehards who will be packing Fenway? They are mostly American, mostly young, mostly educated.
